In Memoriam|

Photo: Steve Werges & daughters | Come celebrate the life of Steve Werges with friends, family, food and music. We will share stories, laugh, cry and remember a man we all loved. Steve served many years on our board and helped us out in so many ways. He ran open mic nights at the Oriental Theater and Gennero’s, entertained us for one of our summer events, not only volunteered his time but his PA system when we participated in the Marines’ Toys for Tots / Christmas Caravan events, and voted to update our name and logo in 2007. We would like to honor him as well. We were extremely shocked to hear of his passing.

His daughter Brittany Werges sent us this info. Please share the info and this RSVP link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/steve-werges-celebration-of-life-tickets-382649303367
